Anti-Semitic Link on Google

I received the following in an e-mail, and checked it out myself. It's legitimate. If you plug the word "Jew" into a Google search, one of the firste websites that comes up is Jewwatch.com, a hate site masquerading as a legitimate website. When I did the search, it was the third website to come up. Here is the text of the e-mail I received:

Subject: Help remove jewwatch.com from Google I didn't know about this and think it's important for you to be aware and, if motivated (as I am), send it along to others. When you Google the word "Jew", one of the first websites that pops up is http://www.jewwatch.com/ --an anti-Semitic, hate-filled harangue masquerading as "scholarly, factual, informational" Add your name to the petition to remove www.jewwatch.com from Google's search engine. (Check out the site and you will understand why.) In order for Google to remove this, they would need a petition of over 50,000 requests.... Go to : http://www.petitiononline.com/rjw23/petition.html to sign the petition. VERY IMPORTANT !! Pleas e pass this one on! Thanks!

This is quite disturbing! The petition now has over 180,000 signatures.

Google has a link with an explanation.
